Japanese car maker Mazda has unveiled the highly anticipated RS-Vision at the 2015 Tokyo Motor Show.

The rotary-powered Mazda RX-Vision sports car concept is a front-engine, rear-wheel drive concept with KODO design-based proportions.

For the uninitiated, KODO design is the design language of the Mazda cars that is described as 'soul of motion'. The design is inspired by the motions such as when an animal pounces, or when a human leaps into action.

At the heart of the RX-Vision is the next-generation rotary engine called SkyActiv-R. The new engine will be more fuel efficient, less emissions and better reliability.

However, Mazda has not revealed many of the specifications as yet. Rotary engines feature a unique construction, generating power through the rotational motion of a triangular rotor.

The car features an aggressive front fascia with a prominent grille and a front lip spoiler. The model features long bonnet and more rakish windscreen. Additionally, a ventilated hood and massive alloy wheels in dark shade adds muscle to the concept. Other notable features are front fender vents, a rear diffuser and a dual exhaust system.

The interior features a leather-wrapped dashboard and a three-spoke steering wheel. The cabin also boasts carbon fibre trim and alloy pedals.

"I look forward to talking with you more about this vision we have revealed here today at the Mazda stand," said Masamichi Kogai, Representative Director, President and CEO of Mazda. "Mazda will continue to take on new challenges in an effort to build a special bond with our customers and become their 'one and only' brand."
